Default It finally happened

Hey Guys:

Well, after nearly 45 years of riding a motorcycle I had my first incident where I had to lay my ST down. At about 20 mph at the end of a sharp curve my front wheel ran across a few shovelfuls of mason sand near a construction site and I lost control. The bike skidded down the pavement on the left side pushing the left mirror support down and in(bent the steel tubing a bit), and breaking the left foot support completely off. Those two items took most of the impact. I escaped with very little effect but I am still mourning the fact that my pristine ride is down until I can replace all that was damaged.
Question is: What route is the best way to get parts. I'll need a mirror assembly, a foot rest, and quite possibly the entire front faring. I'm determined to repair everything but I hate going thru my local Honda dealer. Are aftermarket options worth it. What would you guys do?
